FATHER FIGURES Starring Steven Hauck & Matthew Delamater Selected For LA's Dances With Films Festival

"Father Figures," a short film written and directed by Alessandro Chille, has been officilly selected in the Fusion category for the prestigious Dances With Films festival. The festival, which has been a cornerstone of independent cinema since 1998, will take place at the historic TCL Chinese Theatres in Los Angeles.

"Father Figures" is a touching story about Harold, a man who works as a professional father figure for young men who've lost their dads. To help these shattered souls heal, he must confront his own tragic loss. The film was inspired by Chille's personal experience of being separated from his father during lockdowns and international travel restrictions.

Featuring a stellar cast, including Steven Hauck from "The Marvelous Miss Maisel," Matt Delamater from "The Tender Bar," Isabelle Van Vleet ("FBI: Most Wanted") and Timothy Hackney (Artistic Director of the Bardo Theatre Company), with talented child actor Taylor Pezza, the film explores themes of love, loss, and the meaning of family.

Chillé has previously directed for Amazon Fire TV, Roki Pictures, ATTN:, and Shots Studios. His shorts have earned over 2 billion collective views across the web, and past projects have been finalists for HBO's directing competition Project Greenlight and Doritos Crash The Superbowl.

The Dances With Films festival, now in its 26th year, was formed with the vision of celebrating the quality of work in film, rather than relying on "who you know." Over the years, DWF has grown substantially and is now considered a significant discovery festival, with a reputation for fostering relationships among filmmakers.
